For those who have not been to Kruger lately, a photograhic report of our recent visit to Kruger over Christmas 2007 to keep you going. Not a long report, just 3 instalments of 10 photos each over the next few days.

Part 1:

After a dry first hour of sightings, though it was raining, our first good sighting on the Matjulu loop close to Berg-en-Dal.

Image

Later in the day we enjoyed a leopard gorging on an impala in a tree on the H3 close to Kwaggaspan before it climbed down and disappeared.

Image

We saw a lot of animals sparring, these two on the H10, close to Tshokwane.

Image

One of many tortoises seen on this trip.

Image

Leopard stretching after a long nap on a dead tree on the S28 nearer the Lower Sabie end.

Image

A wonderful scene of two zebra jousting on the S28 nearer Crocodile Bridge.

Image

A lioness had just killed and devoured a warthog on the H4-2 close to Crocodile Bridge.

Image

Hitching a ride at the junction of S108 and S26.

Image

Also hitching a ride on the H5.

Image

These three seemed lost and nervous on the S114 without any adults in the vicinity.

Okay, I guess calling a terrapin a tortoise is tantamount to calling a leopard a cheetah, so sorry for that!

Thanks all for the comments and to those who viewed.

Part 2:

Wild dog were spotted every afternoon on the H11, these just 3 kms from Skukuza.

Image

Early morning treat on the H1-1, 5 kms from Skukuza.

Image

Her roaring mate.

Image

Out for the count! New Year revelry came early on the H4-1.

Image

After years of imagining lions on the Kruger Tablets our wish came true.

Image

Alight from your vehicle at your own risk? Sure!

Image

Sunset at the Olifants lookout on the longest day of the year.

Image

Cute hyena pup on the S90.

Image

Snarling for a suckle.

Image

Aah, at last!
